When it comes to hair-spo, Pinterest and Instagram are our go-to platforms. In fact, I’ve lost count of how many times I’ve rocked up at the hairdressers and sifted through my camera roll to show them a screenshot of the exact hairstyle or colour I’m after.

Aside from offering a treasure trove of different looks, the other good thing with search platforms like Pinterest is that all the search data is saved and compiled. The findings from these data trawls are so telling that, at the end of each year, Pinterest compiles a comprehensive list of the top 10 trending search terms across 10 different categories, offering a guide of things to know about the year aheaad.

From fashion and beauty to health and even interior design, it’s kind of like a little future-telling guide. While we’ve already explored the interiors and accessories trends to know about, one thing we haven’t covered is the particularly interesting hair trends coming to the fore in 2019.

Scroll down to see the three hair themes set to be everywhere in the year ahead.

1. Lilac Hair

Just recently we’ve witnessed a slew of A-listers dying their hair fairyfloss pink but, looking at the stats, this pastel purple hue is set to be the next colour du jour, with searches for “lilac hair” up a whopping 1,077%.
